RentChimp (www.rentchimp.com) is a web app designed to compile rental listings from Craigslist’s database. Users can save their favorites, rank, compare, and even ask for their friends’/roommates’ opinions on properties.
Users that visit the site will be prompted to login using Facebook Connect. Once logged in, the search begins! The search engine links directly to Craigslist. Users can add their favorite listings for comparison as well as rank them. Roommates aren’t left out of the loop either. You can connect with your Facebook network for feedback on your rental faves.
RentChimp takes the idea one step further by providing users a “Bookmarklet”, which can be added to any toolbar to avoid the old copy/paste technique. Furthermore, as the listings expire, RentChimp will send users time-saving alerts. After you visit www.rentchimp.com you won’t want to apartment hunt any other way.
